ABSTRACT

Aim: To compare the outcome of Desarda`s technique with that of Lichtenstein mesh hernioplasty in terms of chronic pain, recurrence and infection.

Methods: A prospective comparative study with randomized controlled trial was conducted at Lahore General Hospital in Surgical Department to appraise the outcome of Desarda Hernioplasty in comparison with Lichtenstein Hernioplasty technique to evaluate recurrence, wound infection and chronic groin pain. The Desarda repair is used to treat inguinal hernia without the use of mesh.

Results: Total sixty (n=60) patients were included in the study by dividing into two groups Group A and B with mean age 40.5 and 39.5 years for Desarda vs Lichtenstein groups correspondingly. Insignificant statistical difference was noted in both groups regarding wound infection but considerable statistical advantage was noted regarding recurrence and Chronic groin pain for Group A patients in comparison to Group B.

Conclusion: We concluded that Desarda repair is emerging technique and cost effective with lesser pain, infection and recurrence than other techniques.

Keywords: Desarda`s repair, Lichtenstein repair, wound infection, chronic groin pain and recurrence.
